We use the social plugin of Facebook on our website (Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). We use plugins in particular so that you can share the contents of our website with other users of social networks or you can refer them to these contents. You can identity the provider of the relevant plugin from its logo or initial letter.
When you visit our website, we do not initially transmit any personal data to the plugin provider. However, if you click the relevant field, your personal data are sent directly to the provider of the relevant plugin and processed by said provider in third countries such as the USA under certain circumstances. After you click a plugin field, a new window opens in your browser and calls up the website of the provider of the relevant social network. The data transfer to the provider of the relevant plugin is carried out irrespective of whether you have an account with the social network of said plugin provider. Once you have logged on to the plugin provider, your data that have been registered with us are directly transmitted to the account you have with the plugin provider.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data when using social plugins is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) of the GDPR. The transmission of personal data to the USA is carried out in compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield pursuant to Art. 45 Para. 1 of the GDPR, to which Facebook and Google are signatories.

You have a right to object to the creation of this user profile, but you have to contact Google directly to enforce this.
